  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 6” (TV Review)

    ,,

    For this writer, there’s no denying it anymore: SALEM is by far the most satisfying horror show on television. Episode by episode, the insane writing, incredible SFX and generally perfect performances combines the individual satisfying aspects that made AMERICAN HORROR STORY, THE WALKING DEAD and BATES MOTEL so successful on their own accord. Yet SALEM has one thing those shows lack, and it’s consistency, infusing their particular brand of horror and shock value storytelling with the organic character development and satisfying reveals of a masterful drama. And even better is SALEM’s refusal to draw a line on the show either: incest, torture and stomach-turning gore have become staples of the second season, served with an unabashed and maniacal grin.

  • Night Vale Nightmares #5: [Best of?]

    ,,

    “The Sun is actually cold! It’s cold and empty, and all is lost! Greetings from Night Vale,” chimes a voice that is instantly recognizable as James Urbaniak, the VENTURE BROS. alum playing the part of senior Night Vale radio personality Leonard Burton as he dives us right into a clip show consisting entirely of clips we’ve never heard before. And as a result, we get a fascinating glimpse of Night Vale’s ancient and mysterious history. I do remember writing in the last review that I expected another interesting format tweak, and “[Best of?]” definitely lives up to those expectations.

  • Etheria Film Night 2015 Announces Official Short Film Lineup

    ,

    For female directors in the horror genre, misrepresentation, discrimination and gender-driven obstacles have long been both the bane of their efforts whilst also a motivation to go above and beyond expectations. Said motivation has born many efforts to curb those mindsets, but above else, it’s led to more independent female filmmakers than ever exploring the dark recesses of their artistic sensibilities, allowing endeavors such as the annual Etheria Film Night to exist. And now, the 2015 edition of the event, which will be held at June 13th, 2015, at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, has announced it’s official short selection, which will lead to the North American premiere of Ursula Dabrowsky’s INNER DEMON.

  • “MAD MAX: FURY ROAD” (Film Review)

    ,,

    For fans of horror filmmaking, it’s no surprise that practically achieved cinematic magic has resonated so deeply within our sensibilities. After all, if something must be seen to be believed, then by seeing it, we believe it in one way or another. But beyond that, the ambition behind a practically achieved stunt or SFX moment is all the more convincing when we know that there’s an element of danger to the procedure, which suddenly makes the stakes much more real and makes our performers all the more believable, even in the most heightened universe.
